Actually a club for men and women, as husband and wives. You are not barred from the club. The membership is very simple.<quoted text>
You guys want to keep marriage an exclusive action; a club for opposite gender people only.
How so? Does any state require a statement or orientation prior to issuance of a marriage license?That is the very definition of discrimination based on sexual orientation.
The point is not our "particular marriages", but marriage as a whole, a matter of public policy, a shared understanding of its purpose and function. By your reasoning, there'd be no reason to bar any consenting adult relationship. In which case what is the point, why license it at all.If you and others are so afraid of your particular marriages losing their "meaning", all because some same-sex partners being allowed to marry, then you didn't have much of a marriage to begin with.
